Hi Frank,

You said (rather shouted) at your Birmingham gig that you don't distinguish or care if fans are new age, old age or any f*@king age but that everyone was welcomed at your concerts. I am in my 68th year and have so far experienced the 'Turner' factor three times including Birmingham the other night, getting back home in Christchurch at 3am. Thought you were amazing, don't agree with your swearing (but each to his own) and love the band. Had to pacify my wife because once again your new T shirts have only been made in SML and not for ladies (different shape or something?) which you have offered in the past and on the night, had to settle for lager when I really wanted some "Turner Bitter'. Is this ever going to be produced commercially, cause its fu*@ing good LOL..! - By the way, a big thank you for introducing us to Jim Lockey last year,we went to see them at Southampton and had a great chat with the band afterwards, nice guys! Second question (bit cheeky) any chance of a signed play list..? :oops:

There were a couple of ladies tshirts there, just not a tour one.

Correct, but they were vests rather than T shirts and anyway, you know what you girls are like and she wanted the latest one :lol:

I suspect then that she already had that one but would have liked the new one in a ladies fitting as well. Thanks for the update though, much appreciated. :wink:

Thanks for that, just placed an order for a pack of 24 'Believe' brew. Pity about missing the playlist at the end of the show but I didn't know about that. Anyway, I think at my age I probably would have been trampled on and never even got close. Maybe next time I might be lucky! Thanks for a great Gig the other night, you and the boys were well worth the trip!

There were a couple of blokes I'd have put in their 50s down the front at Birmingham. It's the short girls I worry about, dunno how they manage it.

Ha, Ha, that includes my missus bless her, but she just loves Franks music and does the best she can to catch a glimpse when she's jumping up and down. Eh, she is quite a few years younger than me and I try not to jump up in case I don't come down again..! LOL

We resign ourselves to the fact that we aren't going to see anything, (despite how good the view was at the beginning of the show, there is ALWAYS some enormous dude who decides to come stand in front of you) and try not to get knocked over, it's fun :)

Tall people pay the same price for a ticket, so they can stand where they like ;-)

Actually, I'm 6ft 4" so usually stand at the side somewhere because I hate it when short people make some kind of fuss that I'm standing somewhere that blocks their view even if I was there first!

Of course! Hence being resigned to it ;) I'm barely 5ft 3" so never really had much choice, but equally I wouldn't make a fuss about it.

The way I see it, I know what Frank/whoever's on stage looks like so being able to see doesnt bother me *that* much.

The thing is that I don't think that Frank really does sit down and even if he performed in a bigger venue I believe that he loves it when his audience participates into his music which, lets face it, we all like to do..! :P
